Great Conversations 2014

On April 22, we brought together a group of movers and shakers, a Who’s Who of political, business and community trailblazers, and let each lead a lively dinner conversation with nine lucky guests. The result was a memorable evening full of engaging conversations.

What is Great Conversations?

The intimacy of a small dinner party, the thrill of the red carpet. Great Conversations is a popular tradition at universities around Texas. Prominent business, political, and community leaders join authors and commentators to facilitate conversations on diverse issues and stimulating topics. Participants pick their desired topic and enjoy a thought-provoking and informative evening, sharing ideas and viewpoints with others. Sponsors are able to treat their guests to a unique, unforgettable experience and support a legacy of civic engagement.
